Track Name: Hot Tequila-Soaked Car
Turned my back on the desert sun
Tequila soaked sunrise and a gun
The sun bleeds red,
But baby I burn clean

In my head my bags are packed
Gotta get right, yeah I gotta get back
Picked up a few things
Two CDs and a buzz

Hey! Hey! Hey!
Hey! Hey! Hey!

Didn’t learn my lesson the first time
Maybe I was doin it wrong
The train never left the station
The fuse never lit the bomb

Every time I lost it all
Couldn’t wait to lose it again
Sorry kid, this is L.A.
Where nothing’s as it seems

Hey! Hey! Hey!
Hey! Hey! Hey!
Track Name: Prom Song
Stars in our eyes
Just pain in disguise
You grew in
You grew out

Brought to its knees
Our shared reverie
Screaming out
Fade the memory

Oh! No!
Hearts never know who’s in control
Oh! No!
Sweet memories, that’s not for me

Blood on the floor
Stop keepin’ score
Can’t escape
I want more

Dust in the light
Hangin’ tight
To the cold of our spite

Oh! No!
Hearts never know who’s in control
Oh! Oh!
Just let me go
Track Name: Winter Bones
North Dakota
Naples, Georgia
The kind of girl who
Was supposed to

Winter Dreaming
Mom caught stealing
Winter bones are hurting
Time is fleeting

Former glory
Was her story
Small town envy
Fool’s inventory

No more rumors
Yeah, no more fights
She rode a scooter
It had no lights – POW!

Good riddance
Good riddance
Good riddance
Good riddance
Track Name: Swamp Thing
I wanna be your swamp thing
You only get what the shepherd brings
You are my prize fighter
Baby let me be your… your all nighter

I cut the bone
I kill
I cut the bone
I kill

I wanna be your swamp thing
You only like how those bluebirds sing
Don’t be scared now, hold me tighter
Darlin’ grab my hand and we’ll… climb up higher

I cut the bone
I kill
I cut the bone
I kill

I wanna be your swamp thing
I ain’t your puppet but you pull my strings
One day baby you’ll see me that way
But that time is not… is not today

I cut the bone
I kill
I cut the bone
I kill
I cut the bone
I kill
I cut the bone
I kill

Rollin’ and rollin’ and rollin’, rollin’ and rollin
Rollin’ and rollin’ and rollin’, rollin’ and rollin
Rollin’ and rollin’ and rollin’
Rollin’ and rollin’ and rollin’
Track Name: Spanish Villain
Cloak falls on the safe light of day
Dust risin’ up as he blows it all away
Took my chance and put my money to the glass
Sippin’ my luck just hopin’ I could last

Wind blew in from the south of town
Sign that told folks were goin' in the ground
Stone cold stare put the city to its knees
Knew it was my time but I wasn’t beggin’ please

Those heavy souls, oh-oh
I chose my road, oh-oh
The flames enfold, oh-oh

Howls on the wind, they march in his name
I felt the call, but I just stared upon my shame
Boot struck wood and her mouth she opened wide
Two walkers cocked. Only for blood they would abide

Their souls had turned mine into lore
Past got so heavy, couldn’t carry it no more
Turned up against god’s death supplier
Bullets rang out and I descended into fire

Those heavy souls, oh-oh
I chose my road, oh-oh
I pay my toll, oh-oh
